Hiroko Kubota Embroiders Internet Cats on Shirts

Hiroko Kubota - Embroidery

There is an old Inter­net proverb that says there are never enough cats. Always more cats. So, it’s no sur­prise that embroi­dered shirts by Hiroko Kub­ota are so pop­u­lar. They fea­ture our furry friends peek­ing out of pock­ets. Not only are they cute and amus­ing, but the embroi­dery is very well done.

The project started when Hiroko made cloth­ing for her son, who requested that his cloth­ing be adorned with cats. He has a bit of an obses­sion with the ani­mal, and had amassed a plethora of images he found online.

After fin­ish­ing the shirts, Hiroko posted them online. Not sur­pris­ingly, they went viral and prompted her to open up an Etsy shop. It’s since sold out.
